Viacommunity Day 2015: Dance Party Toy Prep!

The outstanding team at Viacom never ceases to amaze us! Our third annual Viacommunity Day partnership went off without a hitch. The volunteers showed up full of energy, ready and excited to prep close to 1,000 gently used plastic toys for local kids in need.

100 Viacom associates volunteered to spend the day cleaning, tagging and bagging all of the toys that were collected at 10 participating Kidville drop-off locations across the city.  

The Second Chance Toys DJ had the crowd dancing as they moved from station to station making sure each toy was spotless and ready to go. It didn’t stop there-- the volunteers created posters and wrote messages to the recipients on hang tags that were tied to each toy so the love could be spread from the Viacom White Box in Times Square, throughout Manhattan and Brooklyn before the last donation stop in the Bronx.

We had an outstanding amount of support come through during the event—

Viacom CEO, Philippe Dauman, and COO, Tom Dooley, stopped by to join the party and let the team know how proud they were of them.  

Tee Lawton from Mount Hope Housing came by to thank everyone on behalf of his recipient organization and the families who would be getting some of the toys.

John Lehman from Kidville stopped by to show his support and represent the outstanding Kidville Team. And as always, our dedicated friends 1-800-GOT-JUNK? were in attendance ready to load up their trucks and make toy deliveries to the hundreds of smiling little faces.

Viacommunity Day 2015 was a big success and we couldn’t have done it without everyone involved! Thank you all for your dedication to our mission, the Earth, and the kids.
